The global air freight software market size is slated for considerable expansion owing to the emergence of new companies in the logistics industry, finds Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Air Freight Software Market, 2022-2029”.
Smart technologies have rapidly penetrated the logistics industry, as logistics companies have intensified their need for higher efficiency and output. As a result, several new entities have emerged in the logistics sector, developing next-generation air freight software and other such cargo management solutions by leveraging the power of technologies such as the cloud and artificial intelligence (AI). For example, Reige Software offers its freight-forwarding application called ‘Scope’ that facilitates digital tracking and management of air and ocean freight as well as customs-related operations. Similarly, Logi-Sys is a cloud-based platform that assists with freight, transport, and warehousing operations, covering air, land, and sea modes of transport. The increasing innovation capacity in the logistics sector will be instrumental in fueling the growth of this market in the foreseeable future.
The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be calamitous for the aviation industry as travel restrictions, social distancing, and the fear of contracting the infection have led to a steep decline in the demand for air travel. This will inevitably harm the air freight software market growth because the restrictions on trade and transport and prohibition on the movement of non-essential goods have contracted the demand for air cargo services in several countries.

Russia-Ukraine War Impact
Exponential Demand for Anti-Jamming Antennas to Disrupt Industry Growth
At a time when the aviation industry is gearing to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war has disrupted the market forecast. Notably, the demand for anti-detection systems and GPS gained an uptick. So much so that European countries exhibited profound demand for secure transmission systems. Industry players have witnessed strong demand for multi-platform anti-jamming antennas being used to prevent detection and intrusion from enemies. The conflict had an indirect impact on air traffic and the raw material supply chain.
Based on type, the market is segregated into on-premise and cloud-based. On the basis of solution, the market has been segmented into freight tracking & monitoring, cargo routing & scheduling, order management, transportation management system (TMS), and electronic data interchange (EDI). By end-user, the market has been divided into third-party logistics, forwarders, brokers, shippers, and others. Regionally, the market has been categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
Integration of Intelligent Systems in Supply Chains to Fuel Market Growth
Intelligent systems based on technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) have steadily gained ground in supply chain management. With supply chain logistics getting increasingly automated, the adoption of IoT, etc. is expanding rapidly in this domain, prompting technology innovators to develop and release novel products, especially for air cargo. For example, in July 2018, SITAONAIR, a leading aviation integrator, collaborated with AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir to deploy IoT-powered sensors to track and monitor in real-time sensitive and perishable cargo, such as pharmaceuticals. Similarly, in October 2019, IAG Cargo teamed up with Cargo Signal, a logistics platform that uses IoT for air cargo management, to create new air freight software to improve tracking of air cargo. Thus, the increasing proliferation of IoT-based solutions in air cargo systems is expected to foster the long-term growth of this market.
